Top 4 Reasons to Live in Bear, DE

  • Bear is technically a census designated place within 13 miles of Wilmington and 40 miles of Dover. The funny thing is that Bear isn't actually named after bears, but rather after The Bear, a colonial-era tavern where George Washington once stayed. Although the bar shut down in the 1840's, this town of almost 20,000 in New Castle County has a history and vibrancy that can still be seen in its architecture, sites, and proud people.

  • Stay active! In Bear, there's no excuse to be a couch potato, even when winter arrives. For instance, Becks Pond County Park is an awesome spot for viewing a variety of wildlife and fishing. The Delaware Rock Gym offers excellent climbing walls and always provides excitement along with an intense workout. Looking for something more mellow? Walking along the tranquil Christina River is a wonderful way to start the day. Additionally, the town is full of neighborhood parks, so there are plenty of reasons to go out and explore Bear's recreational venues.
  • Benefit from increasing home value! The value of property in Delaware rose over 5% in the last 12 months--a trend that's expected to continue. That makes now the time in Bear to buy. For those unsure of where they want to live, understand that some real estate companies and owners give housing shoppers the opportunity to rent to own. This allows newcomers the chance to test an area prior to buying. A few neighborhoods to consider are Centennial Village, Country Creek, and Lauren Farms.
  • Dine and party! Whenever the mood strikes, Bear is waiting to serve its residents a good meal and a good time. For some tasty pasta, head to Ristorante Marco. For a bold sandwich, try Capelli's Subs and Steaks. For sushi and fusion dishes, visit Kenny's Pan Asian Cuisine. Once your appetite has been satisfied, go have a drink. Stewart's Brewing Company has great craft beers, Just Mugs Saloon is the place to dance, and Thurston's Pub is always bustling with action.
  • Get any type of pad! Only 37.6% of housing units in Bear are single family homes. The rest are a mix of townhomes, condominiums, mobile homes, and apartments. Those moving here can choose from all sorts of units, even homes built long ago (though White Hall, a historic house in Bear, is not available). For rentals, check near Glasgow Park, as many apartments and townhomes have been built there. The area around Glendale Park typically has houses for sale.
